Uruguay candidate to host the 2030 World Cup

The president of CONMEBOL, Alejandro Domínguez supports the proposal

The president of the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF), Ignacio Alonso, considered it "fair" that the 2030 World Cup be held "where it all began" in 1930.

“It is just the fact of organizing the World Cup, the 100 years, in the place where it all began, where the guts, the courage, the courage to put things on the table were had,” he said at a joint press conference with the sports authorities of Argentina, Paraguay and Chile, which accompany Uruguay in the candidacy.

The president of the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol), Alejandro Domínguez, led the presentation event of the so-called "Centennial World Cup", to honor the first World Cup event, held in Uruguay in 1930.
